Summary

Angus MacKay, leader of the Dragon Knights, failed his brothers and his clan upon the death of his sister. Now he must fight the darkness of despair tempting his soul. Back on Scottish soil, he comes face to face with Deirdre who can wield a sword as mightily as his warriors, and he takes her captive. Yet, with each passing day, the fire dragon inside him roars to claim the one woman fate has destined for him.

Famed mystery writer Deirdre Flanagan is unprepared for the next chapter in her life. On a vacation to Scotland, she steps through the mists and enters into a skirmish alongside a Highlander. However, the fight has only begun, and now she must battle Angus as well as evil in order to claim the love of this Dragon Knight.

Will their love be powerful enough to shield them from danger, or burn them to ashes?

the best

I enjoyed the story I enjoyed everything about the story. It was told beautifully. It took me there. It started out not being the book that I thought I was getting and I couldn't wait to read them all. Thank you for taking me to another land and another time I enjoyed my trip. I can't wait to look at your other books and decide what my next read will be

Did I Get The Right Book

I bought this book because of the reviews however, I was very disappointed with the story. I rarely DNF but I just could not go on with this book. But others loved the book it was just not my type of book.

Mary Morgan has really good story ideas but poor actual writing skills. Throughout each of her books the words "roar, roaring, bellowing and shouting" are used so many times that they have no power within the story and become only redundant. I dreaded reading those words and lost sight of the stories. The protagonists also kept relentlessly pounding their fists and throwing things including many, many cups filled with whatever they were drinking. Did these wonderful characters have such disregard for the folks that cooked and cleaned for them that they continue to create additional chores for them without regard? These works need to be cleaned up and provide nuances that are clearly not in her skill set. Too bad. They could have been so much better.

Paul Woodson was just ok with the delivery of the story. I had trouble with the working which charter was which meaning i had to back track a lot and that was annoying.

Dragon Knight's Shield of love

Angus and Deidre

Self-defense and other fighting styles are her passion, writing romance is her occupation. Little did her friends know their birthday gift would change her life forever. She'd always love learning about Ireland and Scottland, Deidra never took time off for anything but writing and training. Her gift sent her to those beloved countries--now realized it would be a trip of many miles and centuries into the past.

Meeting Angus, Dragon Knight, and tournament contestant was a surprise since the tournament was not present day. Dressed as she was and then feisty and a fighter herself, she surprised and entranced every man that met her. Yet, only one enticed her to feel the same.

Their journey together would be of miles, seas, battles, and feelings. She would eventually learn when she was but not how she got there. She would garner an army of protectors and more. When a misfortune changes his plans another offer takes him to his childhood home to reunite that family and the Dragon Knights. However, an ever magic force led by an even crueler man is determined to stop both.

Another amazing audiobook by Mary Morgan. Each book can be read alone, however, the entire series is amazing. The narration is good and is the storyline and worldbuilding. is wonderful. I truly recommend it and was delighted to learn of another story to come.

Wonderful!

I enjoyed this book tremendously and did not want to stop listening until I was finished it. Angus and Deirdre are both strong and likeable. Mary Morgan weaves a wonderful story and she takes you on their journey with skill and finesse. I cried with them and was afraid for them, wanting more and more as the story developed. There are also several other characters who fit into the storyline with such skill that you are anxious to hear about their stories as well. This book is definitely a must listen and I highly recommend it. Looking forward to listening to more from this author; hopefully it won’t be long before more are available on audible. Once again Paul Woodson does a great job of narrating.

Can't Get Enough of Morgan's World of Fantasy!

Any additional comments?

Ms. Morgan’s writing sizzles from the first page, sharing Angus MacKay’s desparate plight sliding into the abyss of self-loathing.  He hated what he had become and certainly couldn’t ask forgiveness from his brothers, even if they were still alive. Were they? His heart yearned for his home, Urquhart, yet he could not return.  He was to blame for it all, the elder brother who should have been able to control all the forces.  He hadn’t taught his brothers well enough and then the battle ended in his sister’s death.  It was too harsh to even think about.

Each of the books in the series has been about the retrieval of relics taken from these great knights by the Fae.  Their names were stricken from the hallowed halls of the Fae.  Each knight had a quest to redeem themselves whether they understood they must do it nor not.  The three other brothers had redeemed themselves and were safely back home in Urquhart with their partner, chosen by the Fae. However, to fight the evil force growing in their world, all four brothers had to be redeemed, and Angus was not among them.  Where Angus was the one most hard on himself, he was also the most stubborn.  His stubbornness almost cost them everything and he, personally, to learn the meaning of love.

The Fae have chosen to move the relics to the future.  A woman, for each relic, had been chosen from the future, one the Fae deemed special in her own right. For the Fae, even though hard-nosed, loved the Dragon Knights descended from the ancient order.

Deidre had been chosen to protect the shield and bring it to the past.  But if you asked her, she’d have nothing to do with it.  She was a damn good writer, publishing and getting noticed.  She was also a woman who had been dumped on her wedding day – her husband-to-be, paid a prank, dared by his sorority buds.  Now, ten years later, at 30, she no longer was the fragile young woman she’d been.  She had made something of herself including being extremely clever with knives.  Susan, the heroine of her mystery/detective novels had to know how to protect herself.  So what better way to get it right than to learn it for herself?

Her friends decided to surprise her with a birthday gift – a trip to Scotland.  Strange happenings assailed her once in Scotland. She was drawn to certain things, and eventually she was pulled into the past. Deidre was the type of person who didn’t wait for someone to do something for her.  When there was trouble, she stepped in and took care of it.  Afterall, she could take care of herself.  But not realizing what year she stepped into, made her vulnerable and unsettled.


I love the world Morgan created, thoroughly thrilled with its narration, reliving it in vibrant living color. The scenes of tragedy or pain are very nicely depicted by Woodson, wonderfully shown the reader by Morgan.  The heroine is my kind of feisty, determined woman who believes in Angus. Angus is a warrior knight who finally redeems himself and gains the love of a woman warrior in her own right.

Once again, Ms. Morgan has filled my senses with where she took me.  The verdant landscape, rugged mountains, a man with unusual abilities and a kind heart, filthy vermin of men seeking power, the balance of life as they knew it, so close to disaster, Fae who are hard not to like, even when manipulating people’s lives and finally the valor of men with women whom they love.  It can’t get much better than this.

Reader, if you love fantasy, mixed with time travel, Fae, Dragons, knights to make your knees weak, and magic, never hesitate to begin this series.  My appreciation to Mary Morgan’s talent is unending.

Angus's Tale

As a Bard of old, this author weaves a tale of a knight's quest, family, redemption, and the journey to love. Deidre's journey leads her across to Scotland and Ireland and across time having a dragon shield with the guidance of the Fae. Angus must reconcile his past to reunite with his family and find his destiny. Enjoyable read and listening time.
